Even if your resolution is to lose weight or to eat healthier, sometimes you need something chocolate for a treat.
This smoothie is great because it's chocolatey but not super sweet or heavy. It also has a cup of greens and a banana in it, so I'm getting some fruit and veggies without really noticing them. I actually used frozen kale and a frozen banana. For the kale, a couple of weeks ago I washed some torn up kale, dried it and froze it in one cup batches in freezer bags. I also sliced up a banana and froze it in a freezer bag before I made the smoothie.
This smoothie makes either one large smoothie or two small ones. If you want to lower the calorie count, you could substitute another type of milk for the whole milk and powdered peanut butter for the jarred peanut butter. Enjoy! -Rachel
